Unheardof has been serving quietly elegant and eclectic cuisine to Edmontonians for 30 years. Our menu, which changes regularly, is increasingly local, regional and seasonal - a balance between the familiar and the innovative. We do our best to accommodate most dietary needs - celiac, vegetarian, and heart healthy. We are celebrating our 30th anniversary all year long, partnering with the Edmonton Food bank with our dollar a diner program and giving everyone who orders our regularly priced prix fixe menu a 30 in 30 certificate ($30 off a regularly priced entree within 30 days). Order a la carte or prix fixe (tapas, any starter, sorbet, any entree, any dessert) at $70 per guest. Arrive by 6pm (and if your table is available for rebooking by 7:30 pm, that price becomes an amazing $55) Plus there is no better spot to plan your special function - business or personal.

I wanted to visit for the past 25 years or so and left it too long. Back when they first opened they would leave the door locked and only open it for people they were expecting!

Did the three course meal with the seafood soup starter, bison tenderloin, and cheese and fruit dessert. A couple of very decent house feature wines. Not super cheap, but definitely super recommended.

We went to the restaurant for my birthday for dinner. We had our reservation at 530 pm and ordered their three course meal special for $55 per person. If we had gone at a later time we would have had to pay $75 per person for the same meal. The atmosphere was very nice. For a fine dining establishment, I... More

We hadn't been to this high-end restaurant for several years. When I phoned for reservations, I mentioned it was to celebrate our anniversary. This information obviously wasn't passed on to the restaurant / server as it wasn't mentioned. The food was good, the service was good but the bill was ridiculously high. With one glass of medium-priced wine (each) we... More

Was in town for 3 nights on business and picked Unheardof on the final night. Small restaurant with no bar scene. Perfect for couples or small business meetings. Started off with a meat sampler that included Kangaroo (that was a first for me), Bison and Venison. I could have eaten that all night. Finished it off with a beef tenderloin.... More

I retired from my employer of 45 plus years February 1, 2014. A very good friend of mine invited my wife and I to dinner at Unheardof Restaurant on the premise of the four of us getting together to celebrate my retirement. After several delays a January 17, 2015 date was set. She had told me that she had put... More

It is always fun to celebrate the New Year in a special way, and our meal at the Unheardof Restaurant was very special. The food was tasty and just the right amount. The atmosphere was relaxed -- with just the right amount of time between courses to chat and visit. At no time did we feel hurried. We began with... More

We arrived at 5:30 PM on a Saturday evening. Up until 7:30 PM every night you can get a full dinner with appies, main entrée and dessert for $55. It is a good deal as most of us had lobster and other goodies. All meals were very good to excellent and the service from our waiter was attentive and friendly.... More

Five of us went for dinner. We had a young man as a waiter and he was very good. All the dishes we ordered were excellent. A young lady assisted and she was also excellent however we were greeted at the door by an older gentleman who was very standoffish right from the start. When asked a question about the... More
